Printing, scanning, copying, using WiFi

Computers, printers, and scanners

The Computing Center (ZEDAT) provides computer workplaces equipped with printers and scanners for all students of Freie Universität at their PC-Pool in the Silberlaube. To use them, a Freie Universität-account is required.

The computers and scanners can be used for free. Printing costs are deducted from your personal printing account, which can be charged with your Campuscard at the terminals located at the PC-Pool in the Silberlaube. All new incoming students receive a welcome gift of €5 on their printing account.


The university’s many libraries have copy machines available for students which you have to pay using your Campuscard. Information on the copy service can be found on the website of the University Library.

WiFi access

You have WiFi access everywhere on campus so that you can connect to the internet working from everywhere at university. To use the WiFi, you need the credentials of your Freie Universität-account. A manual on how to set up the WiFi on your personal device can be found on the ZEDAT’s website.

Off-campus access to the university network

This gives you the advantage of having access to online library resources no matter where you might be working. To use the university network off-campus, you either need a VPN client or access to the HTTP proxy server.
